New tenant added to growing One Loudoun
One Loudoun has added another tenant to its 358-acre omni-use community.
The Fresh Market, a specialty grocery retailer, has announced they will be opening a new store at the mixed-use development.
Fresh Market officials are excited for the new opportunity as the opening will be their 10th store in the commonwealth.
“We are excited about our continued expansion in the Mid-Atlantic, and in Northern Virginia in particular,” Randy Kelley, senior vice president of real estate and development for The Fresh Market said in a news release. “We look forward to building on the success of our other locations in the area, where we have enjoyed a strong and loyal customer base, and to providing customers in Loudoun County with the same quality products and excellent customer service.”
Bill May, vice president of Miller and Smith, echoed the excitement of One Loudoun to have Fresh Market as a tenant.
“We think Fresh Market fits into what we want to accomplish at One Loudoun, which is to bring high quality tenants into a very exciting mixed-use environment that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the county as of now,” May said. “Fresh Market focuses on the highest quality meats and produce as well as gourmet ingredients. That is what we were specifically looking for and the communities they serve become really good neighbors and a part of the community fabric.
“We think they are a like-minded company to us and they fit well corporately and consumer wise,” May said.
The new store is scheduled to open later this fall.
The actual building that will house the grocery store will be 62,000 square feet. It will house other small shops and eateries on its outlying area.
The grocery store itself will inhabit 23,000 of the 62,000 square feet of space and customers can take advantage of an abundant produce selection, a full-service meat counter, a large cheese collection, fresh seafood and a fresh bakery.
“There will be other tenants in the building that will be in the shop space or liner space,” May said.
The Fresh Market has built its reputation on being an extraordinary food destination store.
“From bountiful produce and a full-service meat counter to convenient prepared foods and an in-store bakery, customers will discover that our stores are committed to variety, freshness and value as well as superior customer service,” Craig Carlock, the company’s president and CEO, said in a press release.
